    Good job! SeaSucker Bike Rack Owners... POST YOUR PICS!

    Since the other "Seasucker?" Thread has gotten so huge, I figured we start a new one so all the SeaSucker Bike Rack Owners can post a pic of their racks in use..

    So LETS SEE THOSE SUCKERS!!

    SeaSucker Talon purchased from ProEdgeBiker.
    2013 Mustang GT Premium 5.0
    2010 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp
    Crappy picture from my BlackBerry



    Took it out for the maiden voyage today, down to the bike shop to pick up some new cleats and to show the rack off. Staff was pretty impressed with it, but there were the usual non believers. I was pretty skeptical at first, but after the drive today, I am much more comfortable with it. 75mph and I couldn't even tell it was up there. I felt more wiggle and movement on my Audi A4 with a hitch rack on the back than this.

    I may flip the mount around and put the fork down at the bottom of the rear window, and the back tire up on the roof. If it is more stable that way, even though it will look goofy, I will probably go like that.

    True test is the 45 minute drive to the trailhead for a much needed ride on Friday!

    I love how they throw it in to him, and then the bike. I nearly spit my Coke out when I saw that.

    Talon on Mini S

    Have been using the Talon for 10 months. Zero scratches, dents or failures. If you want to limit hard water rings? Put some distilled water in spray bottle before mounting.

    Not sure how many of you guys have seen the HORNET yet but here's a vid.
    This rack allows the front wheel to stay on

    Although it's smaller and more portable then my Talon, seems too much work. Also, I rather have 3 points of contact. Score 1 for the Talon.

    OK!!! I wondered if anyone had mounted it like that, across the trunk. Have you been on the highway with it like this? I am just wondering if there is noticeable drag with it like this.

    a bit of wind noise but no real drag - my other car is an SUV with roof rack and there is less wind noise / drag with this set up

    Pardon the crappy BlackBerry picture, and the horrible background. This is how I have been running mine the last few times. Very stable up there, and on the highway, at 80mph, you don't even feel it. I thought that there might be some drag with the seat up like that, but when you have 420hp on call....I am pretty sure I am not worried about any drag.



    Very happy with the purchase so far. Have had no issues at all. Love the Delta mount, and now that it is set, the install is super quick. It is faster than putting a hitch rack on the car, ratcheting the bolt in, putting the lock on, putting the bike on, adjusting, moving any trays or anything like that. I can have the bike on the car in under 2 minutes now and be pulling out. Takes more time to get the cups suctioned on, and adjusting the one for the rear tire.

    I have found that for stability, mounting it to the rear window really helps. The metal on my roof seems to have a lot of give, and for that reason, I will be running my bike backwards.

    Nice Skyline btw. Always like that style.

    Thanks, the roof on the skyline near the window is pretty solid, but i will try off the rear window as well. So far mounting it off the boot i like the most as the bikes don't sit so high.

    I would be too scared to be behind this even though I know how dependable a SeaSucker rack is. MPG must be horrible.

    I have had mine for a few months and its been great. I mount it on the roof so I can still use the trunk. I've had it up to 95mph there is very little wind noise unless you open the sunroof

    ^ does the bike sit at an angle at all, or is your roof fairly flat? I wanted to mount mine like this, but the roof slopes way too much, and the bike leans more than I would like it to.

    If I mount the fork mount around 8 inches in from the edge of the roof it keeps it straight but then you can't use your wipers. It seems pretty solid either way though

    That is very true and should be taken into consideration by any owner mounting it to the front windshield.

    I had mine at 80mph, which roughly calculates to 130km/hr. I had no worries at that speed. If I was to drive that speed for an extended period of time, say 5 hours, I would definitely stop and double check the suction on the rack. After an hour and a half, I had no loss on any of the cups.

    ^ what he said. I drove to Moab this weekend. I stopped to check it once about an hour in and no suction loss. continued on my trip (4 hrs) got to Moab driving about 80 most of the way and cups had no vacuum loss.

    No but I adapted my Thule ski rack to it. Works great. I just keep them in my car so they stay warm and they have worked good for me although I know they dont really say you can. But like I said I have had success with the cold and them staying on no issues knock on wood.

    It does sway, but I doubt

    1) you will be hauling ass like that and power sliding into position
    B) the mount would let go.

    Which one would you guys recommend for carrying two bikes on either a BMW 550 or a Toyota Sienna? Is there one that would work for both?

    Mini-Bomber is what i'd recommend.

    The footprint is 30"x9" so base that on where you want to mount it.

    I found a mistake in the commercial. When he mounts the road bike on the car, he drops the fork in, and if you look closely at the car, there is no rear mount. All of the sudden, it is there.

    My rack

    Posted this on the other Seasucker forum, but I'll re-post here. Thanks again ProEdge for getting this to me so fast! (the seasucker base mount that is... not the Thule rack attachment)

    Used my Mini Bomber mount to take the bikes to Canberra last week on top of my mates Stagea, was great sitting on 110+ kph most of the way and with very minimal wind noise

    This sucker seems tempting compared to other mounting systems that cost more $$$. Planning to give the Talon a try next summer.
